Forum Post: "It's a private club and you are not in it"

The time has come to end the monetary system. Roughly one year of the budget of the United States of America, one could build the factories, farms, and housing to provide for every single individual. An agreement to make our government be the administrators of a moneyless society would bring about half the work the current world engages in. No more counting, and if you need something, go and pick it up, it's free; it's alwys been free. We will need workers to accomplish things, so everyone can help! People wake up!

The funny thing is that the world actually came to us rich in abundance - it was fear and greed and prejudice that took it away and horded it from the rest...it could be shared but some people get off on gluttony and they induce fear in others in order to gain their protectors. What if we could all see beyond the madness and see this, and actually care....

Nothing is free. Everything requires work. That is the reason trade is an essential for any society which wishes to live above the means possible through self-sustenance.

Yes! This would facilitate the 75% die off in population Mother Gaia is longing for! Save the planet, destroy the economy and the unnecessary masses will die n their millions and billions!

So many interesting ideas, are you looking for change through legislation or rebellion? Anarcho-syndicalism doesn't work in large groups, the proponents always talk of limiting the community size to 200 or 250 people. GM alone employees 200,000, the nation has over 300 million people. It's a tough sell at best even if you're pushing it to a "give me more free stuff" crowd of oppressed workers.
